First of all hello from Estonia. I decided to registrate here after doing some search on "Anneliese Michel". I watched the movie "The Exorcism of Emily Rose" and I kinda start to belive that there are some strange forces between life and death. Im very skeptik though bout spirits, god and the devil. I belive in space and time and the boundries of space.. but hearing all my life about ghost, spirits, god and so... im so confused in what to belive.. This is the first time in my life I have written this kind of text in the internet. I havent been in a curch for umm like 15 years or so, im 20 right now and at my work (Im a computer technician) all of my bosses are religous. Catholic or how is that in english. I want to belive in something but there has nothing that can make me belive in something i havent seen... a blurry topic im sure original.gif

There will be plenty of people more than willing to tell you "what to believe"
Take great caution in this.
In the end, you alone are responsible for the decision.

^ I agree. People in here believe in many different things and it's open to argument - like it or not. I believe in the after-life, ghosts, UFO's, possession, etc., but I don't believe in God. Some opinions are credible, others, I'm not so sure about. But at the end of the day, I believe what I do, and no matter how many times people try to drum an alternative into my head, it wont work. I wont change.

I can't, and wouldn't, tell you what you should believe in. Like Pallidin said, it is only YOU who is responsible for your decision.  yes.gif  original.gif

I agree with the others on this; only you can make the decision what to believe in.  I would do some research.  Ask yourself: what sparks your interests?  Don't be afraid to ask questions.  Hope this helps you out!     thumbsup.gif

Hey, I'm in the same boat at the moment. At the moment, I am looking into different things and their origins. It seems to me alot of different beleifs think different things about the same thing. For example, healing. Christians beleive it comes from their God/Jesus. People into Reiki and the like beleive there is a natural source where healing comes from (in the form of an energy). Exactly where does that healing come from?

I've started off with an assumption, i.e. there is a spiritual realm and I'm going from there. I then make another assumption (there is a God) and I scrutinise that until I'm left with something or nothing then move on.
Be open minded, don't let anyone tell you 'this is the way' or 'this is what is really behind it'. Collect all the facts/theories, scrutinise them and make your own mind up. thumbsup.gif

Hope this helps.

Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.

Believe what you want to. Believe what you think is right. Don't believe something because others told you so.

Follow your intuition and heart.

This is the way I look at things:

What I see
+ what I learn
+ what I feel
what I believe.  

I know that a lot of people in my past would wonder why I'd feel this way.  I used to be very involved in the church & other religious things.  But I had a really hard time seperating everything that I had experienced.  I've always gotten premontions & I've always wondered if I was "alone".  That there wasn't a spiritual realm & that those that went on before couldn't cross over to communitcate.

I have to kinda agree with Silver Cougar:

I feel that we are given our instincts & other intuitive gifts for a reason.  To live & to understand.

Everybody has already said it - Beleive in yourself. Keep an open mind.

Read everything first and then see if you can come to a logical decision. Even after years of researching I am still researching because only what you Beleive becomes the Truth for that moment. Keep a questioning mind, it is healthy.

Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear

Hi sweetie,

It depends on what you like.

Do you believe in reincarnation?

Do you believe in sin?

Do you believe you are a servant to God or the same as God?

If you have any questions about Christianity I can help in that area. But I do not know of other religions to much.

I am a believer of many things. But only one God. It depends on what you want to believe. Just search within and ask even your co workers if you are interested in Catholism.  yes.gif

Welcome.
